There's no question that Blake Lively and Alexa Chung are polar opposites when it comes to style. Always going for the uber sexy route, Blake manages to somehow make everything tighter and shorter while making her hair longer and fuller.
Alexa on the other hand, is the picture of London cool. Rarely showing that extra bit of skin, often found in flats and with a new penchant for calf length skirts, we wouldn't exactly describe Alexa's style as sexy. Don't get me wrong - she's the bees knees as far as I'm concerned, my numero uno fashion inspiration, but I can't in good conscience call her a sex pot.
So with all that in mind it's a wonder that both girls were distinctly fabulous in the exact same Chanel dress. Blake wore hers first, and managed to keep it pretty demure. Seems Serena's been taking some fashion advice from the big guns these days (ie Anna), and her red carpet looks have gone significantly more class, less sex. This dress the perfect example of said fashion metamorphosis. Of course the sky high Loubotins help in the vamp department.
Meanwhile, our girl Chung was her usual adorable little self in the mixed florals and slightly sexy see through panel dress. Alexa chose the dress for her front row stint at the Chanel SS 2011 show in Paris this week. She accessorized with black flat loafers and her hair in a trademark messy updo. How many times can I refer to her as adorable?
While Blake oozed confidence and sex appeal, Alexa gave us more of a girl next door thing. Who has your vote?
S & B & well I guess Little J, continue showing off their high fashion know how by sitting ring side at the hottest couture shows in Paris. Les Gossip Girls and Jessica Alba touched down at the Chanel show yesterday, showing off very different, yet all very covetable, Chanel looks (obv).
Blake Lively continues her adorable French tour in a very bohemian Chanel resort dress. Isn't it fabulous? Don't you just want to wear that dress to your next Haute Couture fashion show? Or every day? And it's not too tight nor too short, it's just right! Has she finally found her inner Goldilocks?
On to Jess Alba, who also did her best to go have us all going "awwww" but didn't quite do it for me. The dress is great no question, but the choice of footwear is just not working for me. Clearly it's meant to contrast with the frock's peasant girl thing, but the peep toe weaved booties just make it look mismatched and weird. Am I wron?
Far from awwwww was apparent bad girl Leighton Meester. B was all sorts of rocker chic in some form of long sleeved black leather number which just has me thinking "ugh that looks hot" - no I don't mean sexy, I mean warm as in the fires of Mordor. Is it 100 degrees where you guys are? Because it's 100 degrees here and I just, blurgh can't even look at those long sleeves without feeling suffocated.
My vote is clearly with Blake Lively. I can't believe I'm saying this but she actually looks sweet and angelic!! What's going on with the world??
Sorry so late, but at least you get it all in one place right? Cannes has to be one of the most glamourous weeks of the year and the Hollywood set dresses to overly impress. The premieres, parties, galas et al.
Kate, Eva, JLo, Diane, RBils etc etc... after the jump.
Not even the threat of a blizzard could keep the gliteratti from heading to many a party last night. after all, the headliners were the likes of Chanel, Hermes, Interview Magazine, Full Frontal Fashion etc etc... Let the NYFW madness begin...
Emma Watson's up to her magic tricks again. Not content to top every best dressed list last week, Emma Watson was stunningly British as she made her way into the Today Show this morning. Wearing a red Saloni Alexia dress and Chanel caged booties and Union Jack Quilted bag, the Harry Potter star was so age appropriate and perfectly trendy, she might just kick Kate Moss to the curb as the best dressed It Brit.
This is one is practically impossible!!! Two of my favorite girls, and one fantastic Chanel tee.
Mischa Barton wore the Chanel striped tee on the set of her new Ashton Kutcher produced show The Beautiful Life (it's like Models Inc meets Gossip Girl) paired with a Chanel blazer (of course) and black shorts. While Ms. Miller paired it with an ostrich bag, cuffed jeans and black booties on her way to the Anastasia Salon in Beverly Hills (for a little pre-MTV Movie Awards stop).
I don't know if I can make a decision on this one - who do you think wore it better?
Oh Keira Knightley. What would we do without you? My love/hate relationship with Keira Knightley really stems from the fact that I love her but hate that I can't possibly look as amazing as she does in any thing she puts on. Seriously, she's one of those girls who just makes an outfit no matter what. Oh, and she can pull off the Brenda Walsh bangs which have failed me miserably in the past.
Here she is looking prim and proper in Chanel at the premiere of boyfriend Rupert Friend's movie The Young Victoria.
Since I just watched The Ducchess I can't help but think how amazing of an actress Keira is and how she is just one of those girls with a timeless elegance. Pisses me off.
